An Atheist Yard Sale in South Carolina

A couple of atheists want to move from South Carolina to California but they could use some cash to help them out… so they’re selling some of their belongings at a yard sale this weekend. Their Craigslist ad about the sale is the best thing you’ll see all day:

If it rains on Saturday, like the forecast says, we will also have the moving sale on Sunday, because atheists, remember? Preaching and proselytizing welcome, however it will cost you 10 cents a word to attempt to convert us. Mormons pay double. Mention Richard Dawkins and disavow the Holy Spirit will get you 10% of

I’m contacting them just to see if anyone takes them up on their offer…

    That’s awesome! Maybe I can do the same thing here in Missouri. On second thought, my crazy neighbors would burn me at the stake.

  • Regina Carol Moore

    I love this.

    At 10¢ a word, I hope for their, monetary sake, there is a lot of proselytizing going on there! ;)

  • Andrew Rhodes

    I can easily see the religious coming and attempting to convert them and then, being the “moral” individuals their religion dictates they be… they refuse to pay. Remember the receipt where the “moral” religious folk refused to pay for a tip?

    I also can’t wait to see the religious uproar about about certain religious folk having to pay more. Of course, when religious businesses do that to non-religious folk “They can do whatever they want! It’s THEIR business! And they can serve or deny service to whoever they want too!”

    I’m about 40 minutes from Greer. May have to pay these folks a visit.

  • Deb Fohringer

    “Mormons pay double”


  • Paul Reed

    Yeah, but this isn’t a business, it’s a yard sale.
    To my knowledge, there’re no commerce laws in play. You can do whatever you want with your own property!

    That is one of the funniest CL ads I have seen in a long time!

  • beatonfam

    you must go and tell us what you see.

    Brilliant? Seriously? It makes me wish I’d paid attention to what my mother said about being confronted with pitifully juvenile intellects in adult.

  • allein

    I didn’t know adults had to disable their sense of humor.

  • JKPS

    I’m not sure what you’re problem is? You don’t like humor? Particularly when it’s not hurting anyone?

    Listen, it’s a clearly eye-catching way to raise some publicity for a yard sale, which means more money earned. It will stand out from the other mundane posts by being funny and thus memorable. What about that isn’t brilliant?

    Get over your delicate sensibilities and mommy issues and recognize this for what it is: brilliant.

    n__n California dreams have this effect on people~

  • r.holmgren

    Yes, I understand it’s humour. It’s like grown men giggling over the word titties. Maybe in atheist-world there’s a really low good enough threshold for brilliant.

  • Leiningen’s Ants

    She said walk away, and if the idiots are still thick as flies on shit, pack up and move. Not the listening type, huh son?

  • Leiningen’s Ants

    If you don’t laugh at the word titties, you have no soul, though you probably believe in a literal one.

    Someone must really want them to stay.
